When Swami Vivekananda arrived in Bangalore during 1892 from Belgaum, he stayed at the Kalappa Choultry in the Majestic area for a few days. During that period, he sat and rested quite a few times on a stone bench attached to the front wall of the house of Sri Sugappa, a jeweler by profession. After discovery later that the sannyasin, was none other than Swami Vivekananda, Sri Sugappa and his descendants preserved it carefully with all respect, as a valuable monument. This stone-bench-slab, which was sanctified by Swami Vivekananda, was officially handed over to Ramakrishna Math in Jan 1997.
